In addition, model Bebe Buell, Real Housewives of Atlanta veteran Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her daughter Brielle Biermann, and fellow A&E star John Luke (Storage Wars: New York) posted reaction to the sad news.
Former MTV star Riki Rachtman wrote that he met Beth Chapman last summer and was lucky enough to do a question-and-answer session with her. The former Headbanger’s Ball host described Chapman as a “smart, strong lady” and he joked that he didn’t get a word in during their interview.
